Mark Levin has fired back at Democrat Rep. Jerry Nadler, accusing him of declaring war on the American people.
Nadler has incessantly pushed for Trump impeachment, and most recently been exposed distorting the truth.
Per FactCheck.org, Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler selectively cited former special counsel Robert S. Mueller’s testimony to misleadingly claim that Mueller said he didn’t indict President Donald Trump only because he couldn’t indict a sitting president.
Mueller clarified in his July 24 congressional testimony that “we did not make any determination with regard to culpability.”
During a press conference on July 26, Nadler said that Mueller “told us in a remarkable exchange with [Democratic Rep. Ted] Lieu that but for the Department of Justice policy prohibiting [him] from doing so, he would have indicted President Trump. Indeed it is clear that any other citizen of this country who behaved as the president has would have been charged with multiple crimes. Notably, my Republican colleagues were unable to refute a single one of these facts.”
But Nadler, chairman of the judiciary committee, ignores some of the facts.
During Mueller’s testimony, in response to a question from Lieu, Mueller provided an eyebrow-raising answer that seemed to suggest that it was an Office of Legal Counsel decision — which found that a sitting president cannot be indicted — that alone prevented him from charging Trump. But soon after, Mueller explicitly corrected himself — twice.
At the start of the following congressional hearing, before the House intelligence committee, Mueller in his opening remarks corrected his earlier response to Lieu — again citing his report’s explanation.
Mueller: Now, before we go to questions, I want to add one correction to my testimony this morning. I want to go back to one thing that was said this morning by Mr. Lieu, who said, and I quote, “You didn’t charge the president because of the OLC opinion.” That is not the correct way to say it. As we say in the report and as I said at the opening, we did not reach a determination as to whether the president committed a crime.
And he later did so again when asked about the matter by Republican Rep. John Ratcliffe of Texas.
Mueller: Well, as I started today, this afternoon, and added either a footnote or an endnote, what I wanted to clarify is the fact that we did not make any determination with regard to culpability in any way. We did not start that process down — down the road.
Friday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Mark Levin, author of “Unfreedom of the Press,” criticized House Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) for efforts to force the issue of impeachment of President Donald Trump in the House of Representatives.
Levin called on his listeners to take on Nadler and his allies because he said Nadler and his Democratic colleagues had “declared war on the American people.”
“We need to take on these bastards,” he said. “We need to take them on politically. We need to engage them on a constitutional basis, on a factual basis, on every basis whatsoever. They have declared war today. Mr. Nadler has declared war on the American people. Mr. Nadler has declared war on the office of the presidency and the president of the United States. Mr. Nadler is hellbent on reversing the election results of 2016 and disenfranchising nearly 63 million of you. Mr. Nadler is a throwback. He’s a reprobate from one congressional district out of 435 congressional districts – a dark blue district filled with reds.”
“He doesn’t get to run this country,” Levin continued. “I’ve had enough of this guy. I’ve had enough of his efforts to cripple this president and his agenda. And make no mistake about it, that’s what this is about. They want their third term for Obama. They’ve never accepted this election. They don’t accept a peaceful transition of power.”
Levin called on the American people to confront Nadler and his fellow Democrats, who Levin called “drunk on power.” He went on to call Nadler a “coward,” a “pompous ass” and a “miscreant.”
